BUTLER (KDKA) – State Police charged a 38-year-old Butler junior high school math teacher with corruption of minors Wednesday after he allegedly sent sexually suggestive e-mails to a 13-year-old female student.
Ronald Zawrotuk, of Butler, has been suspended without pay from his teaching position since November.
Butler School Superintendent Dr. Edward Fink told KDKA-TV that another student told one of her teachers about the e-mails late last year. The teacher then informed the principal and soon after that, state police launched their investigation.
Dr. Fink said some of the e-mails were sent on Zawrotuk’s school computer on school property.
KDKA’s Ralph Iannotti reports:
Zawrotuk was hired by the District in 1998 as a 7th and 8th grade math teacher.
“I think it’s disgusting,” Jordan Wilson, a Butler parent, said. “He should probably go with somebody his age – at least [it would be] legal.”
